Quote from the Awards Committee:
“Enforcers Beyond Borders” is an excellent study of the rise, importance and impact of international law enforcement NGOs. Eilstrup-Sangiovanni and Sharman first reconceptualize what constitutes ‘transnational enforcement’, arguing that the failure of states to enforce international law, along with the emergence of new technologies and new legal It has created a space for coercive action of the subject beyond the Detailed case studies on environmental protection and anti-corruption effectively demonstrate how NGO enforcement has grown in importance over the last few decades.
The power of this article lies in its distinct ability to address issues of very clear policy importance while addressing top-notch social science skills such as conceptual analysis, theory construction, and case study development. The impact of increased enforcement of NGOs in the international arena raises further questions about the procedural legitimacy of the actions of cross-border actors and the extent to which NGOs should take over state enforcement responsibilities. By pushing these difficult questions, Eilstrup-Sgiovanni and Sharman successfully opened up important avenues of research for researchers in fields as diverse as international law and comparative politics.
